Market Overview

Timing is critical in any M&A transaction; you can sell from a position of strength if your timing is in line with prime timing of the market. During the virtual meeting, we will inform you of the historical trends in the M&A market, what the current M&A landscape looks like, and what to prepare for in the future. In addition, we will discuss industry trends and potential acquirers.


Business Valuation ranges

The market for selling a business is different from other markets because it is harder to find a clear answer as no two businesses are alike. We know the areas of a business that buyers value most and will go over these with you. Additionally, upon review of your financial statements, we will provide you with an indication of value if you were to test the market now.


Preparing for Market

Presenting your company to potential buyers and investors should include a strategic teaser document and confidential information memorandum. These documents highlight key features of the business and help establish a base for entering into negotiations. We will discuss the best practices to make sure that these documents provide the utmost value.


Identifying the RIGHT Buyers

You have built a valuable business but equally important is finding a buyer or partner that realizes the future value of the business. Benchmark International will walk you through how we identify buyers who are most likely to help you reach your objectives in terms of valuation and growth. 


 Competitive Bidding Process

The market for businesses is driven heavily by supply and demand. To achieve value for the company, it is important to have several interested buyers who will  need to compete to have their offers accepted. As part of the workshop, we will cover effective ways to generate multiple interest in our clients' businesses. 


Negotiating the Deal

Many buyers of businesses are experienced in M&A and will attempt to gain an advantage in negotiating the terms of a deal. Price—an easy concept for anyone to understand— can cloud other important factors to consider. During the virtual meeting, we will identify some of the most common tactics used to maximize the value of the deal beyond just price.

This Valuation is
perfect for business owners who:

  • Are looking to sell their business to retire or move on to other business ventures

  • Have been approached by a buyer and want to make sure they receive a fair offer
  • Are in need of a strategic partner or additional capital to grow their business

  • Simply interested in learning the value of their company to plan for the future
